Pain is one of the most common reasons for individuals to seek assistance from medical, therapeutic and yoga practitioners. Yet, few educational systems in western or eastern health care include knowledge acquisition related to pain or to the lived experience of pain. The techniques, discipline and systems of classic yoga are well-suited for integration with pain care and pain self-management techniques. A well-rounded yoga practice, incorporating any lineage of yoga asana, is one path that individuals can follow in their recovery from chronic pain conditions. The Pain Care Yoga certification processes intend to enhance the benefits of western pain care, and assist individuals in pain to attain improved health through yoga practices.
This workshop provides in-depth integration of pain science, innovative pain self-management techniques, yoga philosophy and yoga practices.Participants will gain a solid foundation in pain science, and in yoga related to pain and pain management. Daily yoga practices and pain self-management skills acquisition will ready teachers and practitioners to begin integration of Pain Care Yoga into their clinical work and movement & yoga classes, leading to improved benefits and outcomes.
